So, no complaints if you decide to move forward.
PLEASE NOTE REGARDING TOPSOIL: Our Topsoil is from our surrounding area so it is "NORTH CAROLINA NATIVE TOPSOIL". It's screened with a 3/4" screen to eliminate most debris/materials (sticks, rocks, etc) and it WILL NOT ELIMINATE EVERYTHING. For example: it's mainly very clean but a few sticks, rocks, etc... can get through our screen because the diameter is around 3/4" so please understand how this works before you order or pick up. Our Topsoil may have clumps and most of the time it's a clump of soil that has been damp (from rain) and makes what we'll call a "snowball" but will break apart once it is dry and crushed. IF YOU DO NOT WANT "ANY DEBRIS" PLEASE GO TO YOUR LOCAL HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE.
Our Topsoil is very good but most Topsoil usually does not have any nutrients. Topsoil is dense and why you need to amend it with compost or other amendments to meet your plant or seed specifications.
Each plant, grass, seed, lawn and environments are different, and the following are guidelines. You need to make your own decisions with your own research or consult with a professional landscaper on your specific soil needs.
Before ordering or picking up any soils, compost, etc. make sure you understand what you are getting and whatever is best for your plants/grass, etc.. because our goal is to have a satisfied customer.
We recommend to “TILL” all soils into your existing soil for best results. If your plants, seed, lawn need a specific mix, please contact our office as we can make most all specialty blends with advanced notice with our products. You will need to provide us with your speciality mix ingredients.
Specialty blends will need advanced notice to mix as we do not stock. All specialty blends need to be paid in advance and no refunds or returns.
